Westside Cooperative Preschool (WCP) is a 100% parent-run, nonprofit organization, which has existed as part of Olympia’s community since 1958. Since its inception, the school’s philosophy is to provide a safe, stimulating and enriching environment for children to learn through play, arts and community.
This year, WCP’s annual fundraising event, The Friendship Run, will be held on March 29th, 2020, and features a free kids run, 5k, and 10k that begins and ends at McLane Elementary School. Drawing over 200 runners and almost 500 people in attendance, this pet- and stroller-friendly event grows year after year. Donations and funds raised at this community event is what drives WCP, and enables our preschool to offer children the positive jumpstart each child deserves.
It is due to hundreds of volunteers and generous organizations’ donations that allows us to fund scholarships for underprivileged students, provide educational supplies, enrichment items, and maintain the upkeep of our preschool.
